Abohar, July 3

Coming down heavily on the Principal Information officer (PIO)-cum-Executive Officer (EO) of the Abohar Municipal Corporation for his alleged absence from a hearing and not replying to a show-cause notice issued on an ex-staffer’s appeal, the Punjab State Information Commission has imposed a penalty of Rs 10,000 and directed the “erring officer” to pay Rs 3,000 as compensation to the appellant. State Information Commissioner Khushwant Singh observed in his interim order that the as PIO had failed to comply with the commission’s order, he was held guilty for not providing the information within 30 days and for willful defiance of the commission’s orders. —OC
